Edsby is our main communication tool at Vincent Massey.  

Students will automatically be added to Edsby and classes soon.  Students will be able to see posted work, assignments, marks, attendance, announcements, and be able to communicate with their teachers depending on the permissions for their specific class.  

Parents and guardians will be able to monitor student progress and attendance.  They will also be able to enter planned absences for appointments or illnesses ahead of time.  Parents will also be able to communicate  with teachers.  If parents/guardians have provided the school with an email address then they will be sent an invitation email with instructions and links to activate their account.

Below you will find links to videos and documents with instructions on how to access and use Edsby.
